George P. Bush Might Run for Office Because That's What George Bushes Do

geoarge p. bushWhew! That was some kind of exciting presidential election, huh? Between the completely inaccurate numbers and the completely offensive comments, there was almost too much going on to notice that this presidential election was also completely free of Bush family members. I mean, how often does that happen? No George H. W. Bush, no George W. Bush, no Jeb Bush or Samuel Prescott Bush or even just plain Prescott Bush. Of course, there were more than enough Romneys to take their place, but still. Anyway, no more slacking for the Bush bunch: 36-year-old George P. Bush, nephew of George W. Bush and son of Jeb Bush, has apparently filed papers "indicating that he intends to run for statewide office" in Texas.

The Republican lawyer has been working in politics for years (since birth, probably), so nobody is really very surprised by this step. Still, nobody knows WHICH office he's going after -- he left that section of the paperwork blank -- so there are still some surprises in store. Of course, for those who don't know anything about George P., everything about him is a surprise! What's that you say? Oh, you're one of those people who doesn't know anything about George P. Bush? Here are a few fun facts to get you started:

1. His mom is Mexican-American.

2. He co-founded the Hispanic Republicans of Texas, a "political action committee that recruits and supports Hispanic Republican candidates and officeholders."

3. He lives in Fort Worth.

4. I was recently appointed deputy finance chairman of the state Republican Party.

5. His full name is George Prescott Garnica Bush.

6. He was voted one of People Magazine's Top 100 Bachelors in 2000.

And ... that's all I got. But I'm sure we'll learn lots, lots more in the next four years.

What do you know about George P. Bush?

    I remember seeing him years ago and thinking he was hot. I think he is the type of person we as Republicans need.

    He would be good for Republicans to help bring Hispanics to our side. I have a feeling he would be up and coming.

    Oh God no.

    Another George Bush?! Bills, I would think by now you republicans would be praying that everyone forgot the name "George Bush", not encouraging him.

    How embarassing.

    Having a Mexican American in your party does not make it more appealing to latino voters. It's probably all the hate mongering and offensive legislation and racist leaders that are so abundant in the GOP, which is why Obama got 71% of the Latino vote.

    Trust me Bills. You've got a lot more work to do than hire another "Bush" to run for your party.

    Well it's obvious that we should hate him simply because his name is Bush. WAY to be tolerant. I just love that about Dems.

    Here's an idea... how about we find out a little about the man before we start assuming that we shouldn't encourage him? Or is it like Venae said, and only Kennedys can have a legacy of government service?

    Autum, just wondering, are you Latino?

    "Way to be tolerant. I just love that about dems"

    Well Pony, I don't have to point out AGAIN that "dems" got 71% of the latino vote.. do I?? Let's talk about tolerance here, sure, but the polls show it all.

    And your comment about "hating" someone because his name is Bush? No one said that Pony. That's you and the "intellectual" right. (Sarcasm)

    I was simply pointing out how silly it is to LOVE and SUPPORT someone, just because their name is Bush, especially considering the last 2 disasters.

    Come on, think a little harder... There ya go.

    And please let's not compare the Kennedy legacy to the Bush family. Pathetic.

    Yeah lets not compare the Kennedys to the Bushs. You know that little pesky things of driving a mistress off a bridge and leaving her to die, mentally abusing a woman so much to drive her to suicide and the other countless acts that the Kennedys do that show that they are soooo loving.
